for secretary of state. hillary clinton is expected to introduce kerry to the senate committee. president obama picked kerry to succeed clinton after susan rice withdrew her name. soledad. >> john, thanks. >>> an historic announcement happening later today. women will be allowed on the front lines of war. outgoing defense secretary leon panetta and the joint chiefs chairman martin dempsey are set to make the announcement at 1:30 this afternoon. many former service members support the move and say women in support missions have already been drawn into battles in places like iraq and afghanistan and they don't have physical front lines anymore. some serve as military police, others have gone on patrols with ground troops in order to talk to afghan women and children. pentagon correspondent barbara starr is following these developments for us this morning. where is the major opposition to this coming from, barbara? >> reporter: well, good morning, soledad. there are some groups that are opposing it because they have concerns about women serving in the military, frankly, and have had those concerns
the measure pulls together a number of things that president obama proposed and could put senate majority leader harry reid in a difficult position, a long time gun advocate, and says he may allow this to go to a vote and an amendment process, could wind up watering it down before it it gets to the house, megyn. >> megyn: now we have the full force of the president's reelection team, no less, out there pushing for support for this and other measures that are backed by the white house. and they are targeting democratic lawmakers in particular who are not on board yet with the dianne feinstein proposal, but would like them to be, so anything could happen. i want to ask about something we saw earlier when dianne feinstein unveiled this proposal. she had props, you know the pictures of these guns, they look like pretty serious weapons, there are no handguns or rifles there, correct? >> well, now what? we actually just got a listing of the specific weapons that were there from our track senior capital hill producer. he was able to get us a list of the weapons and it does seem to include some h
, a shirking of responsibility over the years on the senate's part, but a relatively minor one. >> john: they're paying the bills. and really considering the obstructionism they have faced under the g.o.p. under this president obama i don't what the point of releasing a budget would be, they know it would be blocked no matter what. >> exactly right. the things get funded any way. they get funded through continuing resolutions. it's not the best way to do business but the national parks stay open. >> john: i agree. turning to the filibuster then, when dick durban said that democrats don't have the votes to reinstate the talking filibusters is that because 51 democrats don't support reinstating it or they don't favor reinstating it through the nuclear option? >> i think it's more of the latter. i think a certain number, not a huge number but a smaller number probably chiefly from red states. look at the democrats who are up for re-election and look at how serious of a race those people face that's where you'll find your people. along with a handful of very serious followers of senate rules. ser
was emotionally charged. >> i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrew's. >> reporter: one of those four coffins carried the body of bay area's ambassador chris stevens. how could it happen, senators kept asking. clinton said multiple requests for adequate security never reached her desk. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: another republican senator kept asking why it took so long to interview benghazi survivors. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: and why did u.n. ambassador susan rice and not clinton publicly speak for the administration? she said it's not her favorite thing to appear on sunday talk shows. >> the answers, frankly, you have given this morning are not satisfactory to me. >> you've al

, senator. for me, this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> senator ron johnson who we heard there would tell buzzfeed later, quote, i think she just decided before she was going to describe emotionally the four dead americans, the heroes, and use that as her trump card to get out of the questions. it was a good way of getting out of really having to respond to me. >> jane harman, these personal exchanges aside yesterday, many of them very explosive, many of them very emotional on both sides. do you think we got any closer to the truth about what happened in benghazi in that hearing yesterday and the one in the house? >> well, i'm wearing my solidarity green jacket. i watched much of it. and i thought under very tough circumstances, hillary clinton, who is always magnificent, was even set a higher bar yesterday. i think we'r
